On November 4, 2023, Hartford HealthCare will provide critical medical services for free to our underserved communities. Now in its ninth year, the Medical Mission connects our communities to resources, follow-up care and more.


We are fully committed to improving care and access for our community.


We are moving from an old and broken “normal” model of care that is inefficient, hard to navigate and inequitable. Redefining healthcare to be “better than normal” has required us to challenge the status quo and repeatedly disrupt our own operations.

We face this task with clear-eyed motivation to enhance four dimensions of care:

Our bold commitment to these principles enables us to build a system of care that is more accessible, has lower-cost options, is a champion for equity, and both attracts and delivers excellence.  Together, we are making healthcare better, more accessible and affordable for those we serve. We are bringing world-class healthcare to the citizens of Connecticut and beyond. This is what we all deserve.
